March 4, 2011 – “ANSI Course 287, The American Way” will be held March 30, 2011 and will provide an in-depth look at U.S. voluntary consensus standardization and the American National Standard (ANS) development process.

Attendees can learn about standard development process and procedures, American National Standards Institute (ANSI) accreditation benefits, and flexibility in standards development. Discussions will center on requirements contained in ANSI Essential Requirements.

The unique course offers a comprehensive “nuts and bolts” session for staff of ANSI-accredited standards developers and those interested in pursuing accreditation. To register for this training, go to their website.

What is an ANS? ANSI accreditation signifies that the procedures used by standards developing organizations meet the Institute’s requirements for openness, balance, consensus, and due process.
